    it's most likely i won't be able to get away to deliver my cookies, much less hang out and enjoy the soups as i'm getting a new furnace installed wednesday afternoon. it was originally supposed to be installed thursday, but it's making terribly loud noises and is dying a little every day. i decided it couldnt wait as it's too noisy to sleep through it and it's going to be cold again on wednesday.
    this is all my way of asking if anyone could stop by my place in logan square to pick up my boxes of cookies on their way to the hideout? if yes, please PM me and i'll be forever grateful.

    Joan--sorry you won't be able to join us but please keep us posted and let us know if you have someone set to pick up your cookies. I have a super busy day on Wed. so not sure I'll have time to go over to LS but if no one else offers, I'll figure out a way.

    And updating the soup list--my contribution will be a French-style pork stew.

    Still need one more soup chef--hoping someone will step forward to join us!!

    please don't worry about it, jen. my cookies will show up- ronnie might be able to come by, if not, i'll just leave the furnace guy at work and dash over- it's not that far. but thank you for the offer. i'm going to be sorry i missed it...i might have time to taste just one soup before i dash home....

    Hi Jen, as a first timer, I just want to confirm. Your post says crock pots will be provided, as will ladles? Soup makers just need to be there between 5 & 5:15 with Warm Soup and accoutrements, correct?
    Mine is a Southwest (kind of spicy) Tuscan bean with Sweet Potato soup. I will bring wedge of lime and tortilla strips to serve with.... Looking forward to what sounds like a fabulous event. Celia

    You've got it! Just bring your soup in whatever container you wish--they provide the crock pots which will be turned on to heat up when we arrive a bit before 5:00. They also provide ladles. See you there and thanks for contributing!!

    According to the forecast, it appears we'll be back to (non-extreme) soup weather on Wednesday night. Really looking forward to the event and seeing everyone there!

    My nearly 4 gallons of soup is ready for duty. It is a Southwest White Bean and Sweet Potato soup. I will also bring slices of avocado, tortilla strips, lime wedges and fresh cilantro as accoutrements. I am looking forward to my very first Soup & Bread event. Celia

    Thanks all! Looking forward to it as well!

    Thanks for the updates on the soups—I’ll edit the 1st post now. Also, laikom is doing a “meat lover’s pizza” soup and I’m going to do an additional gringo taco soup, since we never got an 8th volunteer.

    Hope lots of LTH folks, friends and family will be joining us!

    My Meat Lovers Pizza Soup is basically "Cream of Meat" soup, with a pizza sauce topping, oregano and crushed red pepper shakers. I did the stock from pork neck, and parmesan rind, dumped a couple packages of cheese in there as well for good measure. For the meats, I'll be tossing in last minute: pepperoni, spicy italian sausage, hamburger, ham, and bacon crumble. Should be a really rich soup! Hope someone baked some plain pizza crust to go with it.

    I believe the technical term for the amount of cookies you baked is a fuckload. :lol:

    Joan's cookies -- along with our paltry 3-dozen -- are in hand, and our ETA is 5:15.

    See you all there!

    Thanks boudreaulicious for getting this organized and thanks to everyone for the soup contributions - a delicious and really varied selection of soups. And the desserts were terrific too.

    And thanks to those who didn't cook/bake for coming out and supporting the cause. The money you chose to donate goes to food pantries and organizations that feed the hungry so not only do you get a great dinner but you support a great cause - warm feelings all around.

    I was really not in the mood to cook this past weekend -- just been too busy -- but I was glad I did and this is always such a fun evening and a great chance to interact with a lot of people I don't often get to see. Until next year . . .

    Thank you all for the thanks--it was a TERRIFIC effort this year--everything was sooooo delicious, even Matt's crazy meat soup which, I admit, I was a little scared to eat but was strangely addictive. GREAT stuff!!

    Just wanted to add that we raised $666.00 (not kidding :twisted: ). "Our" group was North Side Housing and Supportive Services, but S&B is changing up the format and pooling all money raised, then dividing it equally for all of the participating organizations at the end of the season. Good change, I think, since it doesn't penalize groups who through the luck of the draw or bad weather, get a lighter or less generous turnout.

    I'm sure Martha would love the recipes, if anyone wants to post or PM them. There is talk of a new cookbook so couldn't hurt. If you do, please make sure that you change the quantity back from 3-4 gallons to normal consumption size :)

    Thanks again everyone!!
